  • Windcheater or lightweight jumper for walking
  • Waterproof jacket and (possibly) pants*

  • Torch/headlamp (just in case)
  • Any preferred first aid supplies such as your favourite blister treatment! (Your guide will carry a full first-aid kit)
  • Water bottle/s 2 litre capacity
  • A lunch container (with freezer brick if desired)

Where You Will Stay

We utilise various accommodation providers in the southwest depending on your group’s needs and accommodation availability. Comfortable, self contained, lodge or chalet style accommodation in Margaret River (3 nights), Walpole (3 nights) and Albany (2 nights) allows us to explore the region without having the hassle of packing up and moving each day.


What You Will Eat

All meals are included, with the exception of lunch on the last day, when you can pick something up on the drive back to Perth.

Breakfast comprises cereal, fruit, yoghurt, toast and spreads. There is also juice, a variety of teas and freshly brewed coffee.

Lunch is self-made from supplied breads, salads and meats. On some days, the bus will bring us lunch on the track.

Dinners are delicious two course meals. On some nights your guides will prepare the dinner and on others we will visit a local establishment for dinner. Please let us know of any dietary requirements.

Each day we provide tea, coffee and home-made cake for morning tea. Fruit is also available for snacks. You’re welcome to bring additional snacks (e.g. muesli bars, nuts) if you feel you need them. There will be time for you to purchase additional supplies and alcohol throughout the tour.

Your out of pocket expenses for this trip include lunch on the last day, snacks if you need them and alcohol.


Bus Transfers

Transport is via an air-conditioned coaster bus. The bus will take us down from Perth and back, and transport us to and from the walks each day.
